Projectiles 3D. Working with forces like wind

  1. Jan 13, 2008 #1
    Hello! I'm doing a research work about projectiles and i thought of crossbow system. I am currently studying using these articles: http://ciencia.hsw.uol.com.br/framed.htm?parent=crossbow.htm&url=http://www.stortford-archers.org.uk/medieval.htm [Broken]

    So far i have understand how it works, but none of both sites talks about external factors such wind and other forces that may disturb the arrow orientation and though its range and velocity... So, can you please provide any more information about it? Also, if you have a nice free software so i can simulate this kind of projectiles, i would appreciate it very much :)

    Thank you! :D
